I am using distilled water to mix with my salt. My tank is a 10 gal, so maybe this is the issue? I know that smaller tanks are less forgiving... My small changes have been 10%, and my large changes have been 30%. Maybe I have too much phosphate?
    i have a 10gl nano and i do a 20% "2gl" WC every week and every thing seems to do great for me. i also have a DIY fuge on it to. what are your perams? phose,nitrate exc.?

    This thread was definitely useful in validating some current knowledge of mine while also adding new light into the leftover ions that remain in the water column if water changes are not done adequately. Thanks guys!
